Michael Lander ASLA, a Redding Landscape Architecture firm, provides a full range of landscape architecture services.

Landscape Architecture encompasses the design and organization of outdoor spaces and activities. It creates livable and functional exterior spaces, both public and private. Landscape architects have a great appreciation of the land and natural systems. Designs strive to be sustainable and more projects are LEED certified. Services include the preparation of conceptual drawings, construction drawings, specifications, details, cost estimates, renderings, and construction administration. Designs address the layout, size, and type of materials for the tangible components that make up outdoor spaces. These may include:  Veteran Walk 4

  • Ground Surfaces and Circulation: paving, patios, and decking; accessibility (ADA, Title 24) 
  • Landscape Structures: gazebos, shade structures, trellises, fencing, walls, and screens
  • Grading and Drainage Systems: site topography, retaining walls, erosion control, and rain gardens.
  • Site Amenities: site furnishings and equipment, entertainment and cooking areas, recreation areas and equipment, and signage

Landscape Design creates a living, green environment through the combination of plants and natural materials. Planting design is based on the functional, esthetic, and ecological use and requirements of plant material. Many designs are water conserving, drought tolerant, and low maintenance attained through the use of native or Mediterranean plants and other materials appropriate to our local area. Other landscape designs may reflect the need to incorporate fire safe principles and components to create a defensible space around a home.

Irrigation Design details an appropriate method to efficiently and adequately irrigate the landscape. Plant type, soils, and site conditions are all important factors in good irrigation design. Systems may be low flow, subsurface drip irrigation that include smart, weather based controls. Irrigation designs conform to the Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance and include all documentation and calculations to meet its requirements.

Garden Design adds details to create outdoor spaces that are enjoyable, beautiful, and personal. Outdoor landscape lighting extends the use of spaces into the evening while accenting important garden elements. Water features cool the landscape and add auditory interest through the use of fountains, ponds, or cascades. Gardens are personalized with the inclusion of sculpture and art work, furnishings, living art, pots, special materials, or other treasured objects.
